unique Texas wedding venue

Just last week, we made another bride’s wedding dreams come true. She told us how happy she was with the service at BlissWood: “Carol was very helpful from the beginning, allowing us to come tour the ranch from out of state on short notice. She and her assistant were also both very helpful to our families who were traveling quite long distances to the ranch for the weekend.”

This couple decided to get married in the Oak Tree Grove. After a beautiful ceremony and a session with our resident Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer, Skeeter Hagler, they walked away with lots of wonderful pictures. They also spent 2 nights in the Enchanted Cabin after the wedding, which was just the quiet and quaint getaway they were looking for.  The newlyweds, and their families, all agreed it was “the most perfect weekend.”

If you’d like to start planning your own perfect wedding weekend, don’t hesitate to give us a call at 713-301-3235.  We can’t wait to help you celebrate love!

Catch Some Fun (and Fish) at BlissWood!

August 15th, 2013

We love summer, and it’s not over yet!  We have fun all year long at BlissWood Bed & Breakfast Ranch, but there’s nothing like a warm summer day for relaxing at the lake, enjoying a picnic, or playing some disc golf.  At BlissWood, we combine a real B&B experience with all the action of a family resort. You can have tons of fun at our Texas inn fishing, biking, and more. So if you’re looking for a peaceful getaway and great onsite activities, come on down to Cat Spring, Texas and pay us a visit!

When you stay with us, you might want to pack your bicycle. The ranch has plenty of room and easy terrain for a leisurely bike ride. You can even explore the nearby country roads if you want a longer ride. We also offer bicycle rentals here for just 35 dollars a day.  Of course, there’s no charge if you bring your own wheels!

And for many of us, nothing says summer like relaxing by the water and whiling away the hours with a fishing pole in hand. If that sounds like your idea of a perfect day, you’ll enjoy some catch-and-release bass fishing in our stocked lakes.  Again, we can supply the gear, or you can go ahead and bring your own.

Just the other week, a couple of our guests had an exciting day at the lake! This big bass tried to get away – he squirmed right off the hook. But that didn’t stop these determined young fishermen.  One of them actually jumped in the water and caught him by hand!  We’re glad he did, because it made for an excellent photo op and fun memories!

If you’re interested in booking your own fun-filled getaway, you can check availability online or just give us a call at 713-301-3235.  We look forward to hearing from you!

They also had a blast playing games.  They tried their hand at some of our favorites including Frisbee golf and horseshoes.  And it wouldn’t be a BlissWood vacation without some horseback riding! It was a fantastic weekend full of  fun.

The Buzz at Our Texas Guest Ranch

July 15th, 2013

We’re preparing for our first harvest here at BlissWood, but it’s not the usual crop. Just when you thought BlissWood couldn’t get any sweeter, we’re getting ready] to harvest honey! Of course, we can’t take all the credit – we’ve got a hive of hard-working bees here. And if all goes well, we’ll soon have fresh honey available on our Texas guest ranch.

Thousands of years ago in ancient Rome, the historian Pliny the Elder called honey the finest, most health-promoting liquid known to man. It’s hard to believe, but honey does have many proven health benefits. We all know that it’s a tasty natural sweetener, but it’s more than just a sweet treat. Honey contains 18 amino acids, as well as many vitamins and minerals.

Honey is also believed to improve sleep and relaxation and naturally reduce allergy symptoms. It’s even used to heal cuts and scrapes!  With all these fantastic properties, it’s no wonder that beekeeping is becoming such a popular pastime!

Texas guest ranch

It’s a tricky business, but our beekeeper here on the ranch is a pro. Paul Casteig from Royal Ridge Honey knows that in order to produce the best quality honey, it is never heated or filtered during harvest.  And it’s always hand-packed in glass containers and never in plastic.

And to ensure the most natural product, our bees’ territory is free of pesticides, chemical fertilizers, genetically modified crops, and anything else that Mother Nature herself would not approve of.  That’s how we know that you won’t find a purer specimen of the golden food anywhere.

So if you’re looking for a sweet getaway, consider planning a trip to BlissWood Bed and Breakfast Ranch.  In addition to a relaxing stay at our beautiful Texas guest ranch, you might even get to see the hive in action!  Call us today at 713-301-3235 or check availability online.
